Wonder in the Snow (Haibun)

(Originally posted 3/24/2018)

Wonder in the snow, beauty covering barren land,

magical crystal-
ization, blanket of ice,
white transformation.

Wonder in the way a snow day brings out the child in all of us (and a demanding one at that): must go outside to play, must drink hot beverages, must pull out the crock pot. While winter deepens our nesting instincts, the hibernation principle, the magic of snow turns us into social creatures. snow can't be enjoyed in solitary, it must be shared: "look at this!" on Facebook; to the loved one in the recliner next to us.
